  • Place 1 tablespoon of oil in a medium skillet over medium heat.
  • Cook chicken breasts approximately 6 minutes per side or until the meat is no longer pink and the juices run clear. Remove from the skillet and allow it to cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in the skillet and stir in the green onions and red pepper and cook just until tender.
  • Dice the chicken into small pieces and mix back into the pan with the onion and pepper.
  • Add the corn, black beans, spinach, jalapenos, parsley, cumin, chili powder, salt and cayenne pepper.
  • Cook and stir for five more minutes until well blended.
  • Remove from the heat and add in the cheese, mix thoroughly.
  • Place approximately 1 teaspoon of filling into the center of each wonton wrapper.
  • Dip your finger into a small bowl of water and wet the edges of the wonton wrapper. Fold the wrapper at a diagonal and press the edges together to seal. The water will help with the sealing process.
  • The wontons can be placed on a baking sheet and baked in a 375 degree preheated oven until the wrappers are golden brown or you can heat the vegetable oil into a saucepan and deep fry each wonton for approximately 7 minutes or until the wrappers are crisp and golden brown.
  • Serve with your favorite salsa.
